1024 fuses is right.  Talking about "looks", I just happen to have pictures 
of the silicon on a MMI 16R8 HAL.  A HAL is just a manufactured PAL.

I have a 15-20 mega pixel picture of the entire fuse map.

I'd like to be able to say I finished reading it, but I barely got 
started.  There is a place in china that will do it for less than what it 
cost me to get the chip decapped.  :)
